More than 40 DTA members and prospective members met for the first DTA Emerging Leaders event of 2017 held at the Kimpton Gray Hotel’s Robey Room in Chicago during the Chicago Midwinter Meeting. The event gave members and prospective members the chance to relax and network after a long day of selling at their exhibit booth at the busy McCormick Center. Hot topics included the Chicago Midwinter Meeting, the upcoming IDS Meeting in Cologne and the DTA Washington Conference in April.
“It was a great mix of individuals from large and small manufacturing, distributors and laboratories,” said DTA’s Fred Freedman. “This was a nice preliminary get together before the big IDS Meeting in Cologne Germany in mid–March. Individuals had an opportunity to talk about Cologne and to make some initial plans to get together in Cologne or answer questions about the IDS Meeting for those that have never attended the IDS Meeting before.”
In attendance were five new DTA Member Companies that had not previously attended an Emerging Leaders event. Members are already making plans to connect again on Thursday, May 4th for drinks and snacks at the Anaheim Hilton on the pool deck area at the close of the exhibition during the California Dental Association Spring Session in Anaheim, California.
